    We are taking our 3yo to DW for the first time in April, staying at AKL. My question is-what happens after checkout? Our flight doesn't leave until 6 pm, can we leave our bags and hit a park or hang out at the resort until it's time to leave?

    Hi, Kimberly! Congratulations on your child's first trip! Your Magical Express will pick you up about three hours prior to your departure time - so, that's approximately 3:00 P.M.  You will receive the exact pick-up time the night before in your departure packet.  That will give you one last morning and early afternoon to pack in a little more Disney magic.  You could have one last character breakfast or lunch (at a Resort if you don't have any theme park days left), take one last dip in the pool, do some last minute souvenir shopping, or even hit one of the parks to do those family favorites one last time - if you have another day's tickets. The Bell Services will gladly store your luggage while you enjoy one more partial day. Whenever you are ready to check-out of the Resort, simply explain your plans to the Bell Captain, and he/she will give you a claim tag for your luggage. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for transportation back to the Resort and to get your items retrieved from luggage services and checked in for your return trip to the airport. Happy planning and have a magical vacation!
